Department of History & Geography


Located on the RiverPark campus in uptown Columbus, Georgia, the department houses faculty with expertise in British, Asian, Middle Eastern, Latin American, African American, Ancient, Medieval, Military and International, Native American and United States history.  Courses in Urban Geography, Cultural Geography, and Geographic Information Systems enhance the research and employment opportunities of our graduates.
